PEORIA. 111., Oct. 7.-The Peoria National bank did not open It doors today. C. H. Bosworth has been appointed receiver and will take charge of the bank's affairs pending liquidation. This Is the result of action taken by the board of director at a midnight meeting.

Shortly after 11 o'clock thl forenoon Mr. Dougherty came from the Dime Saving bank, where he had been closeted with Mr. O. J. Bailey and other gentlemen concern ing the securities which he had deposited. He went directly to th school board office In the Library building, where he talked freely about some phases of his affairs. 'Mr. Dougherty, have you any statements yon would like to make concerning this affair and it developments?" "I don't know what more I can say than what ha already appeared," he replied. "I see by the paper that I am craty (smilingly) and am broken down. I did not know It myself." "The putting up of securities Is construed a a confession by many people, Mr. Dough erty," was suggested. 'AH I have to say In that regard la sim ply this: In putting up the securities I have In Mr. Bailey's hands, It was not for the purpose of extenuating anything, but simply that I 'believe things will be shown to be right and then the amount thus doposlted is much more than anyone claims the shortage to be. It has no reference whatever to guilt or Innocence, and It was farthest from my Idea In so doing that I was tn any way putting myself or any one etse In a compromising position. It does mean, however, that neither the school board or the Peoria National bank will lose one penny." The grand Jury Is still In session and Is grinding out Indictments by th wholesale.

At the state's attorney' office today tt waa said that no Idea could be given upon or where th Investigation would end. 'We are grinding out Indictments as fast a th printers can print them," said State' Attorney Scholes today. "I look for a re port of the grand Jury about Monday."

I a superintendent of Insurance for the state of Missouri will proceed under the provisions of section 1.073 revised statutes of Missouri, to cancel or revoke the llcene of the company to do business U this stat. There are many other transactions dis closed by the InvestlKStlon now in progress, particularly tha payments of large sums to one Judge Hamilton, without any account. Ing or auditing on the books of the com pany and the occupancy of costly real estate of the enmpany by members of your Arm at a rental so low as to be prac tically a gift of the property; and. also th protection of a subsidiary cotnpfinv from th loss of many thousand of dollars by the use of policy holders' money, ss well as the Immense and disproportionate ex pense of the comnany in Its mad rush for new business, all of which indicate the grossest Impropriety and recklessness In management and niav call for further In vestigation and official aotion. But from the facts already disclosed tt I evident that tti interest of th !Hllcy holders of the New York Life Insurance company, as wsll a the public, generally, demand a change In the management of the company. Tbl department will, therefore, Ins'st that a new president and Vice preHldnt and finance committee be put In charge of the affairs of the company as soon as Its hoard of directors may be able to effect th chance.

RAMSEY ASKS STATE AID Wants laspeetora Appointed to Snper vlse Election of Wabash Board of Directors. TOLEDO, O , Oct. 7. The Oould-Ramsey contest for control of the Wabash at the annual meeting of the stockholders here next Tuesday broke out today tn an appli cation made to the common pleas court by Joseph Ramsey for the appointment of In spectors of election at next week's meeting. The Ohio law provides for Inspectors that the Interests of stockholders of corporations may be guarded. In Ills application Mr. Ramsey says the inspectors who served at last year's meeting and who were to serve next Tuesday are not qualified by either education or experience to serve as Inspec tors and pass upon the eligibility of direc tors. These men are Fred Reynolds, nephew of Colonel Reynolds, director of th Wabash; A. W. Colton of the Wabnsh Steamship line, and C. W. Newton, local agent. In his application Mr. Ramsey charge that certain stockholder Intend to vote fraudulently. Illegally and defective proxies and ask that new and disinterested Inspec tors b named Mr. Ramsey also make affidavit that he Is still president of the road and represents 10 per cent of the stockholders. Mr. Ramsey contends that the Inspectors will have to pass upon eligi bility of directors, while counsel for the Wabash and George J. Gould's attorney, who are contesting the application, claim that the Inspectors have purely ministerial and not judicial powers. The court will ap point the Inspectors If Mr. Ramsey can prove ho represents 10 per cent of the stock holders, and he has until Monday to furnish such proof. The rumor that the Wabash annual meeting scheduled for Toledo next Tues day Is to be postponed cannot be confirmed here. In fact the local counsel of the company deny the rumors.
